COP26 Panel Discussion - Building resilience with equity - Perspectives from cities and neighbourhoods in the Global South

COP26 Panel  Discussion - Building resilience with equity

Click to enlarge...

Most cities in the Global South have experienced rapid population and urbanization growth which have transformed urban spaces. It is projected that Africa and Asia will concentrate most of the world’s urban population in the next four decades. However, urban planning for more resilient and sustainable cities has so far failed to materialise. Our COP26 panel discussion will bring together researchers, policy makers and neighbourhood residents to explore innovative approaches to build resilience in cities and neighbourhoods in the Global South.
